Victoria’s Secret beauty isn’t the “frothy confection” it used to be (Revenge fans, see what I did there?). Back in the day, VS Beauty was a collection of sweet, pink and glitter. But today, they offer sophisticated fragrance and some real winners in the makeup department. I already have raved about their body oil (see post here). And now I am swooning over Victoria’s Secret Seduction Dark Orchid.
I’ve been using Dark Orchid perfume, body spray and lotion for a week. The chilly weather was a perfect excuse to test drive a sultry, richer fragrance. Dark Orchid is a blend of Midnight Orchid, Crushed Plum and Oud Wood – making it a kind of provocative, darker scent. Details on the fragrance notes:
- Top notes: Crème de cassis, blood orange, crushed plum, pineapple blossom, bergamot, yuzu zest
- Middle notes: Jasmine, red ginger orchid, dark red calla lilies, midnight orchid, muguet petals
- Dry-down notes: Smooth warm amber, oud wood, tonka beans, amber crystals, cashmere woods, creamy musk
Because of the high drama, I love the option of the fragrance mist (aka body spray). It has a less intense feel. The lotion is hydrating and absorbs quickly, leaving behind just a hint of Dark Orchid. And the Eau de Parfume, in a beautiful square bottle, is intense but not heady. You better bet I will be hunting down the candle.
I’m so happy to share this collection with my readers. Three lucky winners will receive the entire fragrance set. Open to residents in US, Canada and London. Enter using the widget below:

oh why not international? 🙁
I’m working with the brand, and they specified geography. But keep an eye out. I have an international giveaway posting soon.
